    18K Henry Sandoz 1/4 Chronograph/Repeater Pocket Watch

    Thanks, guys. That gives me some hope that I won't have to try and locate unobtanium parts. Unfortunately, at my age (77), my eyesight is pretty crappy and my hands have slight tremors which preclude me from attempting something this delicate. I'd like to go back 20 years.

    The watch has been with a recommended chronograph/repeater repairman for about a month. I heard back from him today. It turns out that is a 5 minute repeater instead of the minute repeater as advertised in the auction. He's got the repeater function running well as well as the chronograph...

    Bulova Computron 97C110 (1970's Reissue)

    Hi Folks, I removed the battery on my new Bulova Computron to see what battery it used. Unfortunately, the thin O-ring fell out and I don't know its placement in the battery compartment. Can anybody help who might have one of these? Thanks Mort Denison

    You do great work! I am in awe of anyone who can understand, and disassemble/reassemble something as complicated as these watches. Let alone manufacture parts for them. And marvel at the person(s) who designed and built them in the first place.

    18K Henry Sandoz 1/4 Chronograph/Repeater Pocket Watch

    That's a shame about your watch. Earlier this year, I got a Burlington Special pocket watch movement that was recased in a nice wristwatch case. The seller said it was running nicely - not. I sent it to my repairman and it came back running worse. I sent it to my other repairman. It came...
